Building a Blogging Morning Routine

Building a Blogging Morning Routine

By | Get Started Blogging | No Comments

When you’re working hard at building your blog, it can feel like an all-day job. You’re constantly thinking about what posts you’re going to write and how you’re going to schedule them out, not to mention worrying about marketing your blog across various social media platforms. Blogging can take more work than you might have originally expected, but that doesn’t mean life stops to make time for you.

You still have to go to that full-time job or take care of your kids. Whatever took up the bulk of your day before you started blogging likely hasn’t gone away and won’t anytime soon. So how are you supposed to finish everything you’d normally complete in a day while also running your blog?

If people were asked the question, “When do you have the most free time?” the answer would probably be at night.

That’s why you should seriously consider building a morning routine for your blogging life, and here are some easy steps to show you how to do that. Read More

How to Choose a Niche: The Importance of Defining a Blog Niche

By | Get Started Blogging | No Comments

One of the first questions people ask when you tell them that you’re a blogger is, “What do you write about?” For many, the excited, honest answer is that you write about whatever you want! That can be a great joy that comes from blogging. You can speak your mind and get feedback and communication with people who are interested in the same things you are.

But that same joy can cause a big problem — there’s a difference between blogging and journaling, especially if your goal is to gain readers and make money. If you post most often about what you cook, that’s what users will visit your site to read about, not the occasional rants about your immediate ant problem in your kitchen or how you didn’t get to go to the pool today like you thought you would.

If you’re about to start a blog or just started recently, you’re in the perfect position to consider what niche your writing falls into. Figuring this out is essential to having a successful blog, because readers will grow if you stay consistent with a topic they’re interested in, and that’s not the only benefit. Keep reading to learn how to choose a niche for your blog. Read More
